Long Barn Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

Enjoy this charming mountain cabin, conveniently located just 15 minutes from Pinecrest Lake and Dodge Ridge Ski Resort, 20 minutes to Sonora and historic gold country, and an easy day trip to Yosemite National Park.

The cabin has two bedrooms upstairs. One with a queen bed and a larger bedroom with two twin beds and an inflatable queen mattress. Each bedroom has cable TV. Downstairs, there's a full kitchen, bathroom, living room with fireplace, cable TV, board games, and books. The dining area accommodates 6. Relax on the covered porch or build a campfire in the fire ring for smores!

Summer activities: Pinecrest Lake is a terrific place to spend the day swimming, boating, fishing, or hiking. You can rent kayaks, paddle boats, fishing boats, and party boats at the marina. There's a snack bar that serves burgers and soft serve ice cream, a general store, and a sporting goods store conveniently located at the lake.

The Steam Donkey restaurant serves up delicious lunch and dinner and has a full bar. The Serene Bean, an outdoor coffee stand, is open year round.

In the evening, there is an outdoor amphitheater under the pines that features first run movies. This overlooks the lake and has a snack bar that serves popcorn, hot chocolate, and more. It's so much fun.

Paddle Board rentals are available at Heidi's Ski Shop.

Winter Activities: Dodge Ridge Ski Resort is 15 miles up the road. There is a lodge to relax in and a lot of trails to explore. Grab some lunch at the Creekside Cafe or a beer at the Boulder Bar.

Leland Sno Park is about 25 miles from the cabin. It's a great place to take your kids sledding in a great open area. Traffic is directed by employees of the Sno Park, and there is a lodge that serves snacks and warm drinks.

There's a seasonal, indoor ice skating rink that you can walk to right across the street from the cabin!

Further up the road are great fishing spots to explore and Donnell Vista, a stunning overlook 30 scenic miles from the cabin.

Only one hour to the quaint town of Murphy's, wine tasting, restaurants, and shopping. Calaveras Big Trees State Park is further up Hwy 4 where you can view an amazing grove of giant sequoias.

The cabin is a 1.5- hour drive to Yosemite's north entrance. Be sure to stop at the historic Iron Door Saloon for dinner on your way home!

About Jennifer Nichols

Hi! We're Jennifer and CJ Nichols. We call Austin, TX home, but the mountains of California will always hold a special place in our hearts.

We're photographers who enjoy traveling and playing music with our two daughters.

Jennifer Nichols purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Jennifer Nichols chose Dodge Ridge

We lived in Long Barn ten years ago where we enjoyed exploring all the natural beauty this area has to offer. We enjoyed hiking, boating and swimming at Pinecrest Lake, taking day trips into Yosemite, and taking lots of long, scenic drives through this gorgeous country (usually with Hank Williams as the soundtrack).

What makes this cabin unique

Nestled amongst the towering sugar pines, this cabin is located a scenic 20-minute drive to Pinecrest Lake and Dodge Ridge Ski Resort. Walk across the street to Long Barn Lodge for indoor ice-skating.

Wonderfully charming & relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This was our families second time at the cabin and we once again had a wonderful and relaxing time! The cabin was as before well cleaned, stocked and comfortable. We just love all the decor and the location, it is just 20 minutes from town and ten minutes from Pinecrest lake which we enjoyed spending much time at. We look forward to returning again next year and our family my husband, myself and 2 boys and 2 girls all absolutely love this cabin.(= Also the owners are very attentive and respond quickly, thank you again for a wonderful place to stay on our family vacation!

Perfect for family of four and a dog

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 4 night stay in the month of June 2016. The cabin is located in Long Barn, which is close to both Pinecrest Lake to the east and Sonora/Columbia to the west. One day we drove about 45 minutes to Calaveras State Park "Big Trees." That was amazing! The cabin had everything we needed to cook and enjoy ourselves in the evening after a day of exploring. We loved to sit by the fire pit at night. My kids loved the variety of games and books available and couldn't wait to watch their DVD's in their bedroom each night. I would recommend visiting during the week as the Long Barn Lodge is right across the way and gets busy on the weekends. We enjoyed our stay very much and it is clear that the owners put a lot of thought into the amenities available, making each visitor's stay comfortable and memorable. Wow....I almost forgot, the best thing for me (as the tired mom of the group) were the comfortable beds! That was very much appreciated. Great time in the woods!

Very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved it! It had all the amenities and was very well stocked to make our stay comfortable. Every room was well decorated, complete with cute lamps to create a cozy ambiance. Plenty of blankets and towels. Me and my kids played games and watched a couple of movies. Their movie and game selection was amazing! Thankyou, we will definitely be coming back soon.
